Thanks! I just put an order in for one. My SanDisk Ultra has been giving me trouble in my Q as of late.

Shipped quickly but I had to pay an extra $1.60 and drive to pick it up at the post office because they didn't pay enough postage. Free shipping isn't so free...

That is the first time I ever heard of a customer getting charged postage due on a piece of mail in a large mailing with 7981 pieces of the same size and weight from a large mailer. If you go to the Post Office and put the SDHC card in an envelope up to 6 1/8x 11 1/2 " and 1/4" thick the cost would be 86 cents for a 3 oz piece for First Class and $1.52 for a 4 oz large envelope.

Padded/bubble pack envelopes are classified as parcels as of 1st quarter 2012. Current prices 1 ounce and under for First Class Parcel Post is $2.07. The Post Office is often lax on enforcing this reclassification but are tightening up.

I mail seeds out all the time in small padded envelopes. My local Post Office has been billing them as parcels since summer of 2012.

Large bulk mailers get discounted postage rates compared to what customers are charged to mail a few pieces when given to a USPS window clerk. If you want to save money and sell on ebay etc use the code "twit" at stamps.com .

Same here and I only paid $6.80 w/free shipping and I know they did not pay over $1.60 postage each to mail out almost 8,000 SDHC cards.
